A Season to Work

When I set my goals for 2014, I focused on “work” goals.  I mean, all goals take work, but I believed this season I am in is a season to work.

I don’t really know why I’ve had such an impression about this time of my life, but I began 2014 ready to work.

This year has already been much different than I planned.


But, God.

You see He knew.  He always knows.

I’m one of those people who either ride imaginary unicorns under the sun or scream “the sky is falling” from every roof-top in my neighborhood.  But, God’s not like me.  He’s got it all figured out.  He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever.

Nothing shakes Him up.

He’s not worried about the sky falling, because He spoke the sky into existence.  He’s holding this whole world in His hands.

(I totally expect you to be singing right now.)

He knew this was my season to work, and I believe He’s the one who clued me in.  Sometimes God gives us a heads-up and sometimes He’s all about surprises.

I’m not necessarily sure either way is better.  I mean, sometimes I don’t want to know what’s coming down the pipe before it’s absolutely necessary.  You know?  I guess that’s why He asks us to live by faith, even when it doesn’t make sense.


There is always the danger that we may just do the work for the sake of the work.  This is where the respect, and the love, and the devotion come in – that we do it to God, to Christ, and that’s why we try to do it as beautifully as possible.   ~Mother Theresa

This is my wordy way of saying I got a job.

I got the kind of job that will cause me to shed my fluffy pink robe, brush my hair, and actually leave my house.

I’m pretty excited.

And, you know what?  It’s the perfect job.  I’m actually looking forward to going to work.

This year takes a new turn.  2014 is full of surprises.

This blog will continue as normal.  I’ve got a good thing going here, and I’m not abandoning ship.  I’m more excited than ever to be blogging.

What season of life do you think you’re in right now?

    Congrats on your new job! That’s awesome. I’m in the raising littles season right now. I have a two year old and a newborn, so most days are variations of a fluffy pink robe (or stained yoga pants) and unbrushed hair day. And if I do leave the house it’s with much fasting and prayer beforehand. Sometimes I look back on my career girl days with longing, remembering what it was like to wear makeup every day and have salon-styled hair and cute clothes, but I know I’m right where I’m supposed to be. I may not wear cute clothes every day, but I have two awfully cute kiddos following me around!
